1990. The bosses at Lamborghini had wished for a maximum speed of at least 320 km/h, and the engineers made this wish come true. With a top speed of 325 km/h and acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, the Diablo claimed the pole position in the super sports cars segment.
The Diablo was destined to become the worthy heir of the renowned Miura and Countach. This new supercar was wide, low, and futuristic. And just like its predecessors, it soon became a favourite among car enthusiasts across the world.
The Diablo was produced between 1990 and 2001. During this period, Lamborghini introduced several variations of the Diablo concept, which contributed to building Lamborghini’s legend and were extremely successful in terms of sales: almost 3,000 units were sold across the world.
The Diablo VT was introduced in 1993. Although the VT differed from the standard Diablo in a number of ways, by far the most notable change was the addition of all wheel drive, which made use of a viscous center differential (a modified version of LM002’s 4WD system). This provided the new nomenclature for the car (VT stands for viscous traction). The new drivetrain could direct up to 25% of the torque to the front wheels to aid traction during rear wheel slip, thus significantly improving the handling characteristics of the car.
Other improvements debuting on the VT included front air intakes below the driving lamps to improve brake cooling, larger intakes in the rear arches, a more ergonomic interior with a revised electronically adjustable dampers, four-piston brake callipers, power steering, and minor engine refinements. Many of these improvements, save the four-wheel drive system, soon transferred to the base Diablo, making the cars visually nearly identical.
